Monday – Tuesday:
We have some clouds moving through Monday into Tuesday as a system moves through to our north.
The precipitation looks to stay to our north. We will see the winds pick up later Monday into Tuesday. Ridgetop winds from the southwest up to 40+ mph later Monday and gusting up to 60+ mph Tuesday morning before falling into the afternoon. Highs in the 50s at the base and 40s up top.
Wednesday – Sunday:
The progressive pattern will continue into the long range with troughs swinging through every few days or so. The next trough is forecast to move through Thursday.
This one could bring cooler air with highs dropping into the 40s. A few clouds and gusty winds are possible again as well. Ridgetop winds from the southwest gusting up to 60+ mph again Thursday morning before falling into the afternoon.
We should rebound back into the 50s for highs at the base and 40s up top by Friday, with nice weather into the weekend. Highs could get close to 60 degrees at the base by Saturday. We should stay dry into next Monday with the storm track staying to our north.
The progressive pattern continues with troughs moving through the Pacific NW next week. We could see a deeper trough at some point. The latest model runs dig a deeper trough into CA later next week that could allow a storm or two to dig a bit farther south. That could bring some showers to the northern Sierra.
Overall, we should see some clouds, breezy winds, and slightly cooler temperatures every few days or so through the long range as troughs swing through. In between, we will see nice weather with sunny skies and mild spring temperatures. We will keep an eye on the long-range to see if any storms will dig far enough south to bring us some precipitation.
P.S. My posts will be more sporadic through closing day unless we have an impending storm, in which case I’ll be back to updating daily as it approaches.
